How Can I Make Money from Writing?

If you're like a lot of writers,
you've had the love of writing for as long as you 
can remember. 
Whether you wrote short stories as a child 
or have always dreamed of being a published author, 
it's probably always been something you hoped 
you could do for a living. 
But when you realized that the chances of getting 
a book published were small or the job competition 
in journalism was fierce, 
it may have seemed a career as a writer was simply dream. 
Well, writing for a living...
a very good and comfortable living...
doesn't need to be a dream. 
It's simply time to shift your thinking 
and upgrade your strategy because in today's virtual world, 
there are tremendous opportunities 
for writers to carve out their own opportunities, 
all from their writing skills. 
It's not like taking a job in the real world, 
where you take what you can get. 
You can be selective 
when bringing your writing skills online
because there really is a market for just about everything. 
There are a few ways you can approach making money 
from writing: * Work as a freelancer 
and apply to the many thousands 
of job listings you can find online.

* Start your own writing business 
  where you serve a clientele of people 
  that you love to work with. 
* Create your own books and information products 
  that you sell, building your loyal audience along the way. 
* Publish free content (think blogs, social media) 
  and monetize it with offers for products you get paid for. 
  Which you decide will probably depend 
  on your immediate needs, preferences and long term goals. 

Let's go through these options 
to see what might be best for you. 
Freelancing There is no shortage of writing jobs online. 
You can find writing opportunities on topics 
you're interested in from sites like Upwork, 
Freelancer and other sites. You can articles, books, 
advertisements, blog posts 
and all kinds of content that clients need. 
These are the perfect opportunity to start earning 
some cash right away and to get your feet writing for pay. 
The only problem is, 
not all listings are created equally 
and you'll find a lot of low paying jobs 
from companies who have unreasonable demands, 
so you have to be careful and do your homework 
in finding the right jobs. 

We actually do a lot of this job sorting 
for our members at WriterHelpWanted.com 
and provide them with featured listings 
with the best writing jobs available out there. 
Working with clients can also be a challenge 
because you are subject to their deadlines and demands. 
You also need to account for the time spent 
searching and applying for jobs because 
you aren't paid for that. 
But if you can pick up a job or two, 
you'll start seeing money coming in

and if you do a good job, 
the client is likely to hire you again. 
Your Own Writing Business While freelancing sites are great 
for getting your first jobs, 
if you plan to continue to write for clients, 
the next logical step is to start your own writing business. 
Instead of just applying for random jobs, 
you decide what type of writing you do 
and what kind of client you work with. 
And your clients come to you, 
instead of you chasing down work constantly. 

Running your own business offers the following benefits: 
You get to determine your rates and have more control 
over deadlines and other details of projects. 
You are able to attract your ideal client 
and work solely with people who are a pleasure to work for. 
One of the best ways to get more business 
is through word of mouth and having your own business 
makes it easy for people to refer clients to you. 
Setting up your own business isn't too complicated. 
All it takes is a website and you're ready 
to start finding clients and developing 
long term relationships with them. 

Books and Information Products When you work for clients, 
it's important to remember 
that you only get paid for the time you're working 
and that makes it difficult to scale that business 
or experience the freedom that comes with truly being 
your own boss. So instead of serving clients, 
you become your own publisher, 
you have unlimited earning potential 
because you're creating content once 
and selling it over and over again. 
You can publish books on platforms like Amazon. 
Or you can create information products 
or ebooks and selling them from your own website site. 
The benefit of this is: * As mentioned, 
you create the content once 
and sell it over and over again.

* You grow your own audience of buyers 
that you can continue to sell products to. 

* You create content on your own terms 
and aren't tied to client project specifications 
and deadlines. If you've already got writing skills 
and interest in a topic, 
creating a product is quite simple 
and it doesn't cost a thing. 
Monetized Content Just like publishing books 
and information products, 
monetized content allows you to be in complete control 
of the work you do. Basically, you pick a niche topic 
and you create free content on blogs, 
offer a newsletter, post on social media and more. 
You attract an audience that is looking for content 
on the topics you write about 
and then you monetize that content. 
You can monetize the content by: 

* Recommending products as an affiliate for other companies. 
The company provides you with a special referral link 
and when someone buys from that link, you earn a commission. 

* Displaying advertising on your website. 
You can sell ad spots or work with 
and ad network like Google Adsense, 
which pays you whenever someone clicks 
the links on your page. 

* Create your own books and information products 
that you sell to the audience consuming your content. 
A Couple Things to Keep in Mind 
Where you start in your goal to earn from your writing 
is up to you, but keep these things in mind... 
Pick One Approach to Focus On Many writers 
try to balance trying to get clients 
and creating their own info products 
and that is a tough way to go. 
Often the products never get done 
or the client work suffers.
Instead, put your full effort into one thing 
and you'll see success much more quickly. 
Eventually, you can start adding and adjusting 
as you see some success, 
but when you're brand new and just learning the ropes, 
doing more than one thing dilutes your success. 
Be the Best at What You Do If you're working with clients, 
always do your best work, 
meet your deadlines and avoid making excuses. 
Be prepared for constructive criticism 
and respond to it appropriately. 
If you have a new client, first impressions are critical, 
so do everything you can to ensure their experience 
with you is flawless.
A new client is potentially a repeat client 
that can earn you a lot of money over time, 
so make the best impression possible. 
If you're venturing out on your own, 
creating your own products or publishing content yourself, 
always think of how you can serve your audience best 
and do what you can to do deliver that. 
Check out what other people are doing in your niche 
and work to stand out from the crowd to grow 
a loyal audience. What to Do Next:
